Description Ivo Anjo 2008-08-18 23:16:14 UTC
Version:            (using KDE 4.1.0)
OS:                Linux
Installed from:    SuSE RPMs

It would be nice if I could both drop a picture on the gwenview window while in view mode, and drag a picture from there.

Both operations work while in browse mode, and if dragging from the picture directly can pose problems with regards to dragging to move the picture around (although in many modes like fit or window bigger than picture dragging does nothing), maybe a draggable link could be added to the sidebar.

You can now as of Gwenview 17.11.70 drag from the thumbnail pane while in View mode. But you can't drag a picture to the window to replace the current vierw with the dragged picture.

Allow dragging files/folders to View mode

Specifically accepts drop events within the viewport of {nav View} mode.
If a folder that contains images is dropped, it will open that folder
and remain in {nav View} mode with the first image selected. If the
folder doesn't contain images, it switches to {nav Browse} mode.
Dragging multiple items is supported but only the first item is opened.
FIXED-IN: 18.08.0


Test Plan:
Test with different image formats, as well as unsupported format (Gwenview
should display a nice error).
Test with folder (with and without images within).
{nav Browse} mode and the {nav Thumbnail Bar} drag drop should work as before.
Drop operations should not be accepted anywhere else in the GUI where they aren't
already supported. In other words, this should only add drop functionality to the
{nav View} viewport.

Ensure drops are only accepted for URL mimetypes (e.g. ignore text).

Woah! Took a bit longer than I expected but thank you!

I actually no longer use KDE (on Unity now), but I *do* still use gwenview over the usual gnome image viewer, so 🎉🎉🎉

BTW, if you like Unity, you might consider checking out KDE Plasma again. IMHO, you can set Plasma up to emulate the look-and-feel of Unity much better than Canonical could when they switched to GNOME 3 with Ubuntu 18.04.
